@WNTonight Not enough resources going into Ebola control

“The outbreak is such that more people will die,” Obama said, “but the slope of the curve, how fast we can arrest the spread of this disease is within our control, and if we move fast, even if imperfectly, that can mean the difference between 10,000, 20,000, or 30,000 deaths rather than hundreds of thousands or millions of deaths.”

The CDC estimates that the number of Ebola cases in West Africa could balloon to more than 550,000 unless a more robust response is mounted. However, the agency reported last week that if 70 percent of patients get treated soon to curb transmission, the outbreak could end by late January.
